would do something like this. >> cnn legal contributor paul allen said alabama law may well come into play in this case down the road. >> alabama also has virtually the identical stand your ground law that florida has, so do you know that the officer in this case can probably say he was -- he felt that he was in danger of his life and he was standing his ground in shooting. so i'm betting as this proceeds, you may see that law that we've heard so much about in the zimmerman case in florida rear its ugly head in alabama. >> the officer involved in the shooting has been put on administrative leave until the investigation is complete. >>> now to pennsylvania where the state's deputy attorney general and his wife are accused of severely abusing two children they adopted. police arrested douglas and kristin barber after the kids had a doctor's visit. investigators say the doctor noticed several fractures on the 18-month-old girl's head, and the 6-year-old girl's appeared star. they were charged with endangerment. their attorney has not commented. >>> we know the meningitis outbreak ha
holmes, i'm sure you're aware he did get his guns and ammunition legally. so what changes do the law -- to the law are you looking for? >> well, i mean i don't know that, for example, requiring universal background checks would have changed what would have happened in aurora specifically, but i mean aurora and columbine, those are the big named shootings that we talk about every day, but kids are dying on the streets in chicago every day and law enforcement had told us that the best way to reduce the number of people who are dying across this country from gun violence is to require background checks. i mean 40% of guns sold in this country don't require a background check under federal law because they're sold privately. i think some people don't know that. >> what do you say to people who suggest that gun control is really irrelevant to mass shootings because the perpetrators will always find a way to get around the laws if they really want to, maybe they'll steal a gun, find a gun, whatever it snies you know, there's always going to be black market or, you know, a secondary market
at this this morning. alabama also has virtually the identical stand your ground law that florida has, so do you know that the officer ms case can probably say he was he felt that he was in danger of his life and he was standing his ground and shooting. i'm betting as this proceeds, you may see that law that we've heard so much about rear itsingly head now in alabama. >> that is really interesting to note. now, cnn, paul, spoke with the victim's mother in this case. she is, understandably, in shock. when things do settle down for her, would she have any legal recourse against the school? >> well, it's hard to say. obviously if her son was heavily intoxicated and was trying to attack a police officer, that's going to be a -- that's going to be a tough case to win. however, these campuses have alcohol problems. virtually every campus in america today has problems with intoxicated kids, and they have to develop policies to deal with it. now, this particular university, by the way, is a dry campus. you're not allowed to drink at this campus, even if you're over 21. i noticed from some local news reports
law school graduates, romney also was a harvard mba, will square off and try to tell americans that they're very relatable. [laughter] we'll look forward to that. all right, chris, thank you. >> thank you. megyn: well, these debates, i mean, they're great theater for the american public, and they really do help a lot of americans decide whether it's just a visceral reaction or i like that guy better, they help americans decide. and a lot of the times it's the gaffes that turn people against the candidates. these campaigns, they're searching for the one defining moment, but of course they're also hoping it won't be an awkward one that sinks their campaign. recall 1992 when president george h.w. bush checks his watch during a debate with then-candidate bill clinton. the gesture gave voters the impression that he was impatient and uninterested. during the 2000 presidential debates, al gore got up in governor george w. bush's grill. look. [laughter] just a classic moment where he was invading his personal space a little, and, boy, did he take some flak. mr. bush gave him a nod and

he is enforcing the laws and as you know the big issue for virginians are going to be the defense cuts and i think that is what governor romney is going to sell and i think that is ultimately what is going to help him win the commonwealth of virginia. >> geraldo: what about the latino vote, though, congressman? i underand it that defense is a huge, huge issue in the commonwealth where there is so many defense facilities. but there are substantial number of latinos there, particularly around the disdistrict of columbia. if he talks tough, first of alllet me ask you this. i withdraw that statement. the governor said he will not repeal president obama's temporary dream act measure where he gave a pass, a two year visa to those students you know story who were brought here as children. do you regret that governor romney has done that? >> no, i don't regret that he has. i think your word tough is a little different word. i think if he comes out and talks about the fact as we listen to a lot of voters concerned about immigration issues. one of their concerns are the huge backlog that th
for opponents of pennsylvania's new voter identification law. a judge has temporarily blocked a key component of this law. voters will not have to show a state-approved photo i.d. in order to cast a ballot in next month's presidential election. supporters of the law say it's sdintd to prevent fraud at the polls. >>> at $165 million, it's a steal. the obama administration has decided to buy an empty illinois state prison, once considered for relocating guantanamo bay prisoners. it will house high-security federal inmates and alleviate overcrowding in other prisons. officials say it will not be used for guantanamo detainees, which is prohibited by law. >>> american teenagers are getting the message, drinking and driving don't mix. a new study shows cases of drunk driving among teenagers fell 54%. good news. >> i wonder what those numbers are for texting? i bet that's on the rise. >>> turns out hitching a ride on amman atee is illegal in the sunshine state. a florida woman says she had no idea doing this was against the law. it is. you can't do it. she could face a $500 fine and up to 60 days be
kinds of eyebrows. >>> and he robbed banks and then he gets a full ride to law school. why? because of what he did behind bars. i don't spend money on gasoline. i am probably going to the gas station about once a month. last time i was at a gas station was about...i would say... two months ago. i very rarely put gas in my chevy volt. i go to the gas station such a small amount that i forget how to put gas in my car. [ male announcer ] and it's not just these owners giving the volt high praise. volt received the j.d. power and associates appeal award two years in a row. ♪ appeal award two years in a row. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! oh...there you go. wooohooo....hahaahahaha! i'm gonna stand up to her! no you're not. i know. you know ronny folks who save hundreds of dollars switching to geico sure are happy. how happy are they jimmy? happier than a witch in a broom factory. get happy. get geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke wit
care law to bits. you will see the wild video that has gone viral. the doctor is here, next. and senator john mccain, tweeting about the debate. if that debate was a fight, they would have stopped t. senator mccain has much more to say about the debate. he is here. plus, how you can get free airline tickets? all have you to do is cast your vote for president. are you interested? we'll tell you how. don't go away. are we there yet? are we there yet? are we there yet?

law rocked the legal world? and that's not all. there are several big cases coming up, big issues that become part of the conversation in the presidential race if they aren't already. pete williams is at the supreme court. all right, pete. let's start with some of the top cases. one by one, affirmative action. >> virtually every college in america that's selected uses affirmative action in some ways to achieve a racially diverse campus. this better prepares students for the working world. upheld nine years ago, but this time it faces a new challenge with the big change on the courts. who wrote that opinion upholding it is gone replaced by samuel alito. the case o comes from the university of texas which allows basically every top academyive performer in a texas high school, guarantees them submission. one factor they look at in rounding out the class, the question is whether they discriminates, it's challenged by a white student who failed to get in. >> we heard a lot during the primaries about gay marriage. tell us about the act. >> signed by president clinton defines marriage be
in to law had taken effect. yes, you might say in terms of the job losses the worst was still to come when mr. become become came in. that is not so either. more than half the 8.7 million jobs lost as a result of the recession had been lost by inauguration day. the president inherited an economy still in recession all right. but the recovery came before the policies could take effec effect. remember this. deep recession including those in financial crisis lead to sharp recoveries but this has been the weakest recovery since world war ii. >> bret: you have covered a lot of debates. you're out for wednesday's to be on the panel but what do you think of this debate and how much the need can move if governor romney holds his own in the first debate? >> there is not much history of debates moving the needle much but it's interesting to see if governor romney can do something he needs to do, get across to people he is the man to make the economy an begin to really vibrate again. do it concisely and specifically. that is a challenge. but to stand next to obama for the first time on eke with footi
justices in the mold of the chief justice john roberts. now that he's voted to uphold this law, would you still knowing what we know now, nominate a justice like john roberts? >> well, i certainly wouldn't nominate someone who i knew was going to come out with a decision that i rehemently disagreed with. >> joining me now is jeffrey toobin. voting for the united states senator is the number one reason to vote for them since they confirm these nominations. i just want to show you a moment that just occurred in the massachusetts senate debate tonight between scott brown and elizabeth warren. let's listen to that. >> who's your model supreme court justice? >> let me see here. that's a great question. i think justice scalia is a very good judge. justice kennedy. the i think they're very qualified people there. >> >> miss warren who would be your model supreme court justice. >> i think it would probably be elena kagan. >> jeff toobin, it seemed elizabeth warren got that right the first time. we saw scott brown move from left to right. >> it looked like he was sort of randomly picking names out
slammed the president over his health care law and economic policies. >> florida is among several swing states. it holds 29 of the electorate votes needed to win in november. >> will note that we are just days away from the first and only presidential debate and the candidates are preparing for that match up on the heels of the first presidential debate. politicians from both parties are weighing in on who they say will come out on top. >> i think the vp debates are very important. i think that joe biden is incredibly gifted and it comes to the bidding at understanding policies. >> vice president biden will do very very well. he knows what's been going on. he is in touch with the american public. and i just hopeful that mr. ryan will tell the truth. >> while foreign and domestic policy issues will both be in place for questioning. it is the only vice presidential debate for this election. >> we will have both of dp and the presidential debates coming up in their entirety news channel. the nights they are still to happen to to comcast 1 and 93 to watch live on in to what the coverage of
's august primary, more than 133,000 people have registered. at nova's southeastern university law school in broward county. >> are you registered to vote? >> at florida atlantic university in boca raton -- >> are you registered to vote this year. >> reporter: outside the courthouse in plantation, no mistaking which candidate alan supports, but he says -- >> we register anyone that comes along that wants to register. >> reporter: you would prefer they register democrat. >> of course i work for the obama campaign. >> reporter: jonathan cologne registered. >> i'm looking in the future ten years down the line, whatever they can do to make their four years count is what i really want. >> reporter: with so much at stake in florida, there can be a darker side to voter registration. palm beach county supervisor of elections susan booker discovered discrepancies, signatures that looked the same, addresses that didn't appear right on more than 100 voter registration forms. >> we just haven't ever experienced this kind of issue with the registration forms and so that's got us a little disconcerted.
-existing conditions. ironically, the health care reform law mitt romney signed as governor and remains in effect today in massachusetts does mandate coverage for anyone with pre-existing conditions, whether they already have health insurance or not. a bit later in the program, we will talk about one of the few moments that mr. romney failed to strike a tone of moderation. it concerns a great big yellow bird. that makes it on our "ridiculist" tonight. a good friend of his, oscar the grouch, i can tell you it's really got my attention. first, ari fleischer with the serious stuff. he serves as part-time unpaid communications consultant to the romney campaign and political analyst, roland martin. ari, what do you make -- do you say that mitt romney is seeming to be striking some more centrist positions, or at least sounding more centrist? >> well, let me try to peel this onion one slice at a time. the 47% comment really breaks down to two. one is that the pejorative way he spoke about the 47%, which as i, you didn't show my clip, when you asked me about that the day afterwards, i said it was wrong, they'r
about, can't make decisions about what treatments are given. that's explicitly prohibited in the law. let's go back to what governor romney indicated, under his plan he would be able to cover people with preexisting conditions. well, actually, governor, that isn't what your plan does. what your plan does is to duplicate what's already the law, which says if you are out of health insurance for three months, then you can end up getting continuous coverage, and an insurance company can't deny you if it's been under 90 days. but that's already the law. and that doesn't help the millions of people out there with preexisting conditions. there is a reason why governor romney set up the plan that he did in massachusetts. it wasn't a government takeover of health care, it was the largest expansion of private insurance, but what it does say is that insurers, you have to take everybody. that also means you have more customers. but when governor romney says he'll replace it with something, but can't detail how it will be, in fact, replaced, and the reason he set up the system he did in massachus
surprised the muslim brotherhood said islam is our law shirea the way. highest calling. that has been their motto. he didn't see it coming? >> maybe he likeses that. billions of dollars goes to egypt. billions of dollars. >> we continue to bpay them. why didn't he protect mubarak? other people say in the same position as mub bamub back say y should i be defending the united states. if the tied goes against me they are going to push me out also. when you talk about foreign policy and foreign policy presidents i think he goes down as the worst in the history of this country. >> this is their foreign policy. we couldn't show the body of bin laden. but he can tiell everyone he killed bin laden. the trailer to a movie nobody has seen and then the spokesman says oh no every embassy, tunisia, sudan, cairo, libya, two navy seals ambassador killed and jay carney says this. they are not attacking america. >> this wis a fairly volatile situation it is in response not to the united states policies, not to obviously the administration, not to the american people. it is in response to a video, a fi
the mexican border in arizona. they remember him as a good agent and kind father. >> being involved in a law enforcement position is one where you literally risk all, and he was willing to do that, and in the end he gave his all. very soft-spoken, gentle giant if you will. bill: he was 30 years old, married, father of two and we remember him fondly. martha: many political experts saying that governor romney had to go in there last night and shakeup the 2012 race during that debate if he wanted to do well when it came to the actual voting in the beginning of november. he and the president battled over issues on the economy, they talked about healthcare. so, how did mitt romney do last night? let's talk to herman cain. he debated governor romney several times during the primaries, a former presidential candidate of course and also the ceo of godfather's pizza. good morning, mr. cain happy to have you here. >> thanks, martha, happy to be here. martha: you're one of the people that has been on stage with mitt romney in the past. did you see a different mitt romney in anyway last night? >> i saw
prepare for something like that? >> you know, it's real. the numbers are there and the law is cast, and the math the economists have defined and this seemed to be the consensus, this can be 4% of gdp, i think it was meant to be somewhat of a ticking time bomb to prompt action. i don't think anybody is going to be pleased if it doesn't produce action. obviously people have written off the period up to the election and put their faith in lame duck session to do some work. i don't think a lot of work can be done, maybe at the most optimistic there can be some rejiggering, rearranging, redeferring. but if they got something done, medium hanging fruit and then said we have a structure in place and maybe by the middle of the year we come up with a whole program and set ourselves a deadline and agree to work together -- and i'm somewhat optimistic of after the election, regardless who wins and where the compromise is set, people who have been pouting for 18 months and holding their breath aren't going to do want to do that for the next four years. there will be some confidence moving that
